CORNERS to Umeå 2014

CORNERS Ersboda, 16–30 November 2014
in collaboration with Umeå 2014

“Our events place will be Ersboda, a suburb of Umeå. We will turn Umeå from inside out. In the center of Umeå, there’s the Glasshouse which will be the invitation window for events in Ersboda.
Our partners in Ersboda and Umeå 2014 are a great help and despite the long dark nights in November, we are sure, that we will bring some lights, sounds and joy in that community.”
Natasa Zavolovsek, producer/coordinator CORNERS

CORNERS will present 4 projects in Umeå 16–30 November:

“Kids on the CORNERS: BIRDHOUSE GALLERIES and PAPYRINT
BIRDHOUSE GALLERIES
The artists and teachers Nedyelko Delchev and Maciek Salamon will tell stories about famous artists and guide the kids through the process of making birdhouse galleries. The kids will make wooden houses for birds. Each one of them will be different and each of them will be a work of art created by kids. These birdhouse galleries will be shown in public spaces.

International artists:
Maciek Salamon (Poland) – musician, artist, teacher
